Horizon offers landscape professionals an extensive selection of top quality pre-emergent herbicides, post-emergent herbicides, and aquatic herbicides to treat and prevent a variety of pesky weeds.
When selecting a herbicide, assess your client's landscape and determine if their weed treatment plan should include residual weed control, contact weed killer, or both. Pre-emergent herbicides are chemicals used to prevent unwanted weeds before they show up in a garden or lawn, while post-emergent herbicides are used to kill weeds that already exist. Some herbicides are uniquely formulated to combine pre- and post-emergent herbicides to treat on contact and provide residual control of weeds. Aquatic herbicides are specially designed for use in ponds, lakes, and fountains to control aquatic weeds and algae without contaminating groundwater or being toxic to fish or other wildlife.
In general, common weeds found in residential and commercial lawns, flowerbeds, gardens, and on golf courses can be classified as broadleaf weeds and grassy weeds:
- Broadleaf weeds tend to compete with grass or desirable vegetation for resources like sun, water, and nutrients found in the soil. Some common broadleaf weeds are Dandelion, Dollarweed, Clover, Ground Ivy, and Common Chickweed.
- Grassy weeds, like Nimblewill and Crabgrass, are hard-to-control species of grasses that are considered invasive amongst certain lawn grass species.
Mosses, sedges, vines, and woody plants can be treated and prevented with the use of herbicides too.
